Really don’t use this car enough.

Owned it for 26 years now !

Anyway dug out the furniture clinic kit again today and touched up a bit of the leather that had become discoloured.

Not sure the picture shows the improvement that well but really is so much better now.

Well that was embarrassing :oops:

Was at a cars and coffee event this morning, parked up had a wander and a chat and headed for some coffee and cake with the girls as I normally do but then got a call saying that they were closing the car park and could I come and shift my car.

Now had this call came within 20mins of parking up or after 90mins of parking up this wouldn’t have been a problem, but anything in between these times and Monaco Blue ain’t going anywhere and so it proved to be. Had to be be bump started out of the event which wasn’t exactly her finest hour.

Known about this fault for years but never been an issue as I normally just rock up at leave it parked for a few hours before heading home again, it’s just the same when I take it work but now I feel compelled to try and fix this although know that it can be like chasing shadows and often ends in giving up.

Fred gave me a loan of his test kit at the last meet (thanks again Fred) and I know there is a tutorial on here but looks really complicated and well out my comfort zone.

Worth a go or just live with it ?

I would surprised if the fuel pressure test kit reveals anything if you don't have any other issues with starting, running or power.

This sounds like a classic hot start issue. What are your injector lines like from the fuel distributor to the injectors? Is the outer insulation still intact? Have you tried holding the accelerator pedal to the floor whilst cranking under these circumstances? That is the official Porsche solution if all other components are within spec.

Alex,

Thanks for the reply and no other issues whatsoever, starts no problem from hot or cold, it’s just this 20min-90min window.

The insulation on the fuel lines is pretty cracked. Is this the most likely cause and if so is there any fix? I assume these are NLA.
